Transport - Benefits and Harm

See also the page on Road Costs.


We take for granted the benefits of transport - allowing us, at least those of us who have the wealth - to get goods from afar and to go to distant places to sample their delights, and to do business across the globe. No need to rehearse these advantages here. We all just assume that Transport Is A Good Thing.


But is it really worth it?
